IMMIGRANTS’ EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS

  • Pedro Garrido Rodriguez SIHCDH - Salamanca University

Abstract

Within the set of human rights agreed and universally recognized, the right to education occupies a priority place. Everyone assumes that education must be guaranteed, compulsory and free, at least for minors. However, there is still a very significant group of people who do not enjoy their educational rights. Migrants, excluded persons and lack of resources are those that most de facto lack this universal basic right. The United Nations has made some proposals to resolve this problem, such as Objective No. 4 of the Sustainable Development Goals: Ensure equitable and quality education. This article thoroughly analyzes the main initiatives built in recent years in the international context.
